First bike ride

Lucy went for her first solo bike ride on Sunday and she did surprisingly well. Of course she was wearing a helmet and knee pads but she kept her balance with the help of her training wheels. She managed to ride up and down the driveway making turns at each end. It must be all that practicing on the tricycle doing a loop through the kitchen! BTW this is a 14 inch bicycle as the 12 inch standard for her age was too small. Initially she wasn't sure on the colouring even though the bike is purple because there is a significant amount of blue too. We were able to convince her that this was the bike for her (the only other 14 inch bike at Toys R Us was a red Dora bike) She loves the purple helmet with ladybugs!
